  1. Yes, PayPal is fine. Or we can do credit card payment through Square if you prefer. We usually do e-transfer for our small business with Canadian customers but I don’t think that will work between American/Canadian banks. Whatever works best for you. I am going to the post office this afternoon to confirm shipping options. Regards, Dan
  2. Hey @72MustangSprint, Apologies, I haven't been on the site for a long time and missed your message while I was away. Yes, I still have the Sprint hubcaps. Let me know if you are still interested and if so, your postal code for shipping so I can get you a quote. I hope all is well in your area given the current restrictions. Take care, Dan
  3. Haven’t been on in a long while while but needed some help replacing my backup light switch today so came back to the best place for help with 71-73 Mustangs. A big thanks to @Denkil for the original question post and to @Stanglover and @secluff for the detailed replies.
  4. While I am not really into toys other than the ones I can actually drive I thought this was pretty cool. Saw it at the LaChute Flea Market in Quebec. Didn't purchase but figured it was worth taking a pic for the forum.
  5. Wow... 429 SCJ convertible? That has got to be the rarest of the rare. And I like the ol' school photo too.
  6. Oh, I dunno... I'm not sure what dollar value you put on driving a 351 Cobra Jet 4 speed convertible and my car has most certainly been rode hard and put away wet far more than the car in the post. However, pretty much every time I drive mine, it feels like it is worth every penny and hour of time I have put into it. Good luck with the auction. It looks like a great car and excellent resource for those in restoration.
  7. Medium blue aqua (code 4N I think). It seems to be a one year colour that was only available in the mainland US according to the Sherwin Williams paint rep.
  8. Two 1972 Sprint hubcaps, good used condition $65 CAD / $50USD plus shipping. Blue painted outline still in very good condition, some small indentations, and scratches. One cap has some scuffing in small areas on the face but only visible within 18 inches. Message me for offers, more photos, and / or shipping quote. Regards, OPN PONY
  9. :goodpost: Ray, I have been trying to replace the jack for my convertible (missing when I got the car) so thanks for posting this. Great reference and very useful for users of the site. Regards, Dan
  10. A few years ago, I read in Mustangs and Fords magazine about a memorabilia collector that had in his collection a pair of cufflinks in the shape of a 351C 4V. They even have have 351C 4V embossed on the air cleaner assembly. I've been looking for some ever since. While she doesn't really understand my fascination with cars and especially 71 -73 Mustangs, my wife must really love me. She found the cufflinks for me. I guess not everyone likes cufflinks but I think these are great and it is the engine in my '73 convertible. The magazine article makes a reference to the cufflinks coming from an engineer or technician that worked at Ford when the Clevelands were introduced but is not very specific. Anyone else know any details about the history of these items?
  11. Great looking car and a nice story to go with it. Congrats to both of you on having your car the magazine.
  12. I had a lot of similar trouble with my 73 convertible after getting it on the road and based on that I would agree with Racerx. On my car, the steel fuel line from the tank to the fuel pump had an intermediary hose (approx 12'-16') where the fuel line goes inside the engine compartment just behind the driver's side front wheel. I am not sure if that is original design or if someone added it later. Anyway, there was a small (not immediately visible to the eye) crack in that hose that would suck air and allow fuel to drain back when the car sat for a few hours. Took a while to track down but made a big difference once I changed that fuel hose. Good luck, I hope the suggestions help.
  13. Went to the swap meet to avoid standing at the auction with my bidder's card in the air at a level of cash I shouldn't be spending. Couldn't help myself though: contacted the auction service representative, who was by the way very professional and was very helpful in allowing me to preview the car. Sounds like the car sold for high 'teens (Canadian dollars) and I don't think there was a buyer's premium. Good for the buyer and the seller in my opinion. Still think my '73 convertible and the '71 Mach 1 would have looked good together in my garage though...
